Description: Speak and write perfect English BBI teaches you how to combine words with words to form phrases (so you can say mortgaged "to the hilt"; I want something "badly" ). BBI also teaches you how to combine words into structures to form clauses and sentences (so you can say I want "you to go" = What I want is "for you to go" ). So BBI helps you with both vocabulary and grammar. BBI shows you important vocabulary and grammatical differences between American and British English. BBI gives you plenty of examples that can serve as models for your own use of English. Some of these examples are authentic quotations from works of American and British literature.This Third Edition of the "BBI Combinatory Dictionary of English" is an expanded and updated version of the First Edition (1986) and its Revised Edition (1997), both of which were favorably received.
